    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    This charming apartment is conveniently located between the station and Piazza S. Maria Novella, a few steps away from the Duomo.
    Situated in an ex convent dating back to the 16th Century, its walls are thick and guarantee a pleasant temperature even during the hot Florentine summer.
    The apartment itself is 50 square meters, but the garden room provides an extra 25 square meters of space. The garden is more than 100 square meters.
    The prominent features are the frescoed ceilings, the lovely antique glass doors, and the enclosed mediterranean garden, with tall palms, banana trees, an oleander and an orange tree. Almost all trees and shrubs are evergreen, so the garden is enjoyable in any season.
    Access is from an internal private courtyard away from the street, so the apartment is very q...

This apartment has the best location in Florence you could ask for! Peter and Julie were wonderful hosts. There is so much space we really didn't need it all but the place is really good for a couple. It was a tad cold when we were there and Peter set us up with a space heater which helped in the... more

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The apartment was great for the needs of my nephew and myself. The location is excellent especially if travelling by train. All the major resorts are near by and as Florence is such a walkers city the apartment is ideally located. The outdoor space is lovely although we didn't make as much of it as i'm sure visitors in the... more

Management response:

Thank you so much for your review. In fact, we do recommend the apartment for two people. But there is extra bed just in case. We do not advertise it as a large apartment and the square metres are clearly stated, and our guests who choose our place to come in groups of 3 or 4 are generally happy with... more

The location is excellent, and the apartment was perfect for our needs as a charming and (to us!) authentically Florentine base for our four days' stay. Modern bathroom (very nice), decent kitchen, comfy bed, cd's and books to browse in the lounge area, and a sitting area in our own leafy courtyard garden. Loved the frescoes in the bedroom, and... more
